I met Longfei in 2013. We fell in love and the relation lasted four years.
Longfei was afflicted with Kallmann syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that affects less than one person in every 8000. The disorder delays or results in absence of puberty and an impaired sense of smell. He also sufferred from heart disease. Lacking the production of certain hormones that direct sexual development(GnRH), he had to get hormonal injections every three day to develop secondary sex characteristics, overcome sexual dysfunction and maintain health.
Due to his special condition, Longfei is not limited by the temporal sexual identities. He can go back and forth on his identities, either man or woman. Yet, gender stereotype creates prejudice and discrimination.
From 2013 to 2017, I kept recording his daily life, photographing our loving moments and how he fought for his peers' rights. It was a micro part of his life, but my in-depth exploration of romantics and sexual identities.
